Are Digital Twins Something For EDA To Pursue? - Part one: Defining the digital twins concept; the trouble with models; the issue with the ecosystem.
By Ann Steffora Mutschler, Semiconductor Engineering | Featuring Raik Brinkmann, President and CEO of OneSpin
‘Digital Twins’ are one of the new, fashionable key concepts for system developers, but do they fit with EDA? How many different types of engines do these twins run on – abstract simulation, signal-based RTL simulation, emulation, prototyping, actual silicon? What should the use models be called for digital twinning – like reproduction of bugs from silicon in emulation? Or optimizing the implementation usage using data run safely in virtual and FPGA based prototyping?
